Tom`s work concentrates on the sheer and permanent beauty of form in nature. He aims to express the power and vibrancy of the living world through the tactile mediums of clay and stone in all their beauty and timeless variety and is proud to be swimming against the present tide of the abstract and the conceptual in current art practice.
Sculpture: 'Baroque Lion after Canova (Carved stone statue)' by Thomas Brown
Hand Carved Stone Recumbent, Dozing, Sleeping, Prostrait, Lying Lion after Canova statuette or Stone Carving Resting Lion sculpture a tribute to CanovaT. The lion is Sated, by the remarkable Thomas Brown The Lion`s belly is full and round, and he Rests, gently licking his paws clean after hunting and devouring his prey. The animal`s immense strength, even in this passive pose, is conveyed through the powerful musculature and elegant anatomy. The coiling vitality of the mane expresses the awesome potential energy held within the creature`s recumbent frame.
The piece is worked traditionally with only hand tools. Carved in hard French Lime stone with rich warm veining running throughout. I aim to carve a partner for this piece, a ravenous lion, preparing to leap from its plinth and pounce upon its prey.

Dear Peter (ArtParkS), Plamen (artist) Just today the package with the sculpture ”Forest Fairy” has arrived. Safe, perfectly packed. I must say “Forest Fairy” is really beautiful, great! I like her very much, her hands, her emotional dance, feelings hidden in her body. Thank you for filling my home with beauty. I wish you both a lot of enthusiasm for marvellous work you do.
